The rail industry and government are collaborating to ensure the railways continue to be one of the lowest carbon transport options for passengers and freight.
Decarbonising as part of sustainable development
Decarbonisation means reducing, and ultimately eliminating, carbon dioxide emissions. It is essential in tackling climate change and a fundamental issue facing all industries
The rail industry intends to decarbonise through improved energy efficiency, new power sources and modal shift.
Our members are committed to the pursuit of a net zero carbon railway. Less carbon means less cost, and the more ambitious we are, the more we are helping the country meet its carbon targets.
